Tax Incentives Aid Vet Hiring, Study Finds

Washington Post (04/14/12) Steve Vogel

A new study from the RAND Corp. concludes that federal tax credit programs encouraging employers to hire disabled veterans are proving effective. In 2007, Congress added incentives to the Work Opportunity Tax Credit program, offering employers who hired disabled veterans who were recently discharged or unemployed for more than six months up to $4,800 per hire. The new study finds that the tax credit increased employment among disabled veterans by two percentage points in 2007 and 2008, or approximately 32,000 jobs each year. “These findings suggest that tax credits may be an effective means to reduce unemployment among disabled veterans,” says the study’s author, Paul Heaton.
